Eco-Schools Solar Programme - Free Power for Schools
As part of its ongoing drive to help schools improve their eco-performance and environmental education, Eco-Schools has arranged for schools to participate in our fantastic new Eco-Schools Solar Programme.
The programme will provide participating schools with free electricity for use by the school generated by solar panels. The programme includes the following features:
zero installation and maintenance cost
electricity generated is provided free to the participating school
a display system showing staff and pupils the power generated and carbon saved
a free Display Energy Certificate (DEC) for five years, which can cost schools up to £3,000
an opportunity to link solar power with learning opportunities as part of the Eco-Schools awards
an opportunity to qualify for a Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) Energy Award by achieving reduction in carbon emissions above 10%
In addition to the direct benefits to schools the programme will allow us to offer a greater range of support materials, training and other resources to Eco-Schools in England.
This support will enable more schools to progress through our awards to Green Flag and beyond.
